Next Brighton manager odds: The latest odds on the man to replace Chris Hughton at the Amex as Seagulls new manager

Graham Potter

The search is on for Brighton to find their new manager after sacking Chris Hughton, with Swansea boss Graham Potter the initial favourite.

Brighton have begun the search for a new manager after sacking Chris Hughton just hours after the final day of the Premier League season.

Brighton finished 17th in the Premier League, just two points above the relegation zone, with even a run to the FA Cup semi-finals not enough to save Hughton after a poor run in the league saw them flirting with relegation..

Here's the list of contenders to take the helm at Brighton.

Graham Potter (Sky Bet odds) 2/5

Swansea boss Potter has quickly emerged as the odds-on favourite among bookmakers. The 43-year-old joined the Swans from Swedish club Ostersund last summer and secured a 10th-placed finish in the Sky Bet Championship. He has steadied the ship at the Liberty Stadium following Premier League relegation and created an attractive brand of football with a young squad and limited resources.

Phil Neville 7/1

While vastly experienced as a player, Neville is only just taking his first steps in management. The 42-year-old former Manchester United and Everton player is currently preparing to lead England at the Women's World Cup, which starts in just over three weeks. He has only been in that job since January 2018 and has a contract which runs until the end of the 2021 European Championship campaign.

Lee Johnson 7/1

Johnson almost guided Bristol City to the Championship play-offs this season and has earned plaudits for his style of play throughout his tenure at Ashton Gate. He was famously by Pep Guardiola when they put up a hugely impressive showing against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup semi-finals last season, and thos style points could be just what Brighton are looking for.

Frank Lampard 11/1

Lampard got Derby into the play-offs in his first season as a manager and has handled himself well in the tough Sky Bet Championship, so it was only a matter of time before he started being linked with Premier League jobs. He may feel that Derby is the place to be for now to get another season under his belt but if a Premier League club do come calling he'll have a big decision to make.

Mikel Arteta 25/1

The Spaniard was at the Amex Stadium for Hughton's final match as he celebrated a Premier League title success in his role as Manchester City assistant manager. He was heavily linked with replacing Arsene Wenger as Arsenal boss last summer and is expected to step into a management role at some point. However, with City dominating English football, the 37-year-old may prefer to continue his education under Pep Guardiola.

Alex Neil 33/1

The Scot was heavily linked with the vacant West Brom job. He put an end to the speculation by signing a new three-year contract with Preston last month. The 37-year-old's current club clearly do not want to lose him but, if Albion come calling, another opportunity to work in the Premier League may prove difficult to resist for the former Norwich manager.
